We’re officially one year away from the National Jamboree! 

If your Scout wants to attend the big event, but you’re hesitant on the price tag, the BSA offers scholarships that could cover any requested amount up to the full national fee of $1,285.

The BSA wants to ensure that every eligible Scout who wants to attend the Jamboree can do so — regardless of financial background. Scouts are encouraged to fundraise as much as they can to cover fees, travel expenses and other costs. Councils can provide scholarships to Scouts who need them, and some national money is available to supplement those scholarships.

Full scholarships will only be given in the most extraordinary cases; most scholarships will total less than half the national fee. Scholarships are only available for youth participants or unit leaders up to age 33. Jamboree staff members are not eligible for a scholarship; all staff members ages 16-33 receive a reduced fee.

The initial deadline to apply is July 31, 2022, with those applicants being notified if they’ve been approved by mid-September. A second scholarship deadline will be Dec. 31, 2022, with those applicants being notified by mid-February. To be considered, you will need to submit an online application and be approved by your council to attend by July 31 (for first-round applicants) or Dec. 31 (for second-round applicants). Check here for full eligibility requirements and steps on the application process.
